Celebrating Over 60 Years

The East Tennessee Corvette Club is for Corvette owners, who share the passion for America’s sports car.  Activities are many and as varied as our membership has interest.  In the spring, we hold our annual banquet.  This event is a little more formal than our other activities but still casual.  This is the time that we recognize the contributions and accomplishments of our members for the previous year.

We kick-off the warm weather and Corvette fun with our annual Dogwood Tour in April. This is a Sunday afternoon event touring one or more of the Knoxville area Dogwood Trails followed by dinner at a local restaurant.

July or August is normally picnic month. We enjoy various picnic venues such as a local park, a member’s home on the lake, or a pool gathering at the home of one of our members. 

September is usually the month for Vette Fest. This is an ETCC hosted weekend event in Pigeon Forge that has been held annually for more than four decades. It draws participation from several states and includes a car show, cruise, dance, and various other activities. 

Our annual car show is held at Reeder Chevrolet in October each year. In recent years, we have held a very successful silent auction along with the car show, which benefits our charities.

We spend time touring the countryside enjoying the fall colors of East Tennessee. Our mid-way destination is usually one of the state parks in East Tennessee where we enjoy an excellent Sunday noon meal and then return home to the Knoxville area.

National Council of Corvette Clubs

Membership in ETCC automatically includes membership in the National Council of Corvette Clubs, Inc. (NCCC) by virtue of completing required paperwork and payment of dues. This dual membership is a requirement of ETCC By-Laws and provides liability insurance for club sponsored activities. The NCCC serves as an umbrella organization for ETCC, sponsoring numerous competitive type Corvette events on a regional and national basis. The following information is taken from the NCCC website at:

The National Council of Corvette Clubs, Inc. was founded in the United States as an all-volunteer, non-profit organization in 1959 by a small group of Corvette owners/enthusiasts! The purpose of NCCC was (and still is) to promote interest in Corvette ownership and operation, to publish information on the use and operation of the Corvette and to establish an organized effort to encourage others to participate in the enjoyment connected with the use and ownership of the Corvette – “America’s Sports Car”!  In the early days, the number of clubs was rather small with all of them being located east of the Mississippi. Today, there are over 270 clubs in 16 Regions spanning both east and west of the Mississippi River! Membership in NCCC is comprised of more than 18,000 members and is the largest non-profit, all volunteer Corvette organization in the United States!
